Wow, congrats on your blue ribbon from the Florida State Fair, Ruth Anne! This is a stunning basket! I really love the serpentine coil on the outside of the basket, and of course the perfect stitching! So inspiring, don't you think?
We have shared the wonderful baskets of Ruth Anne Danger before...and she just keeps making them. Those of you who have "friended" Ruth Anne on Facebook may have seen these before...but we just had to share them again! This one features not only serpentine coils couched on the out side of the basket, but a twisted handle in the "hurricane" tradition as well! Let's peek inside and see another surprise!
These all feature pottery basket bases from my MakeABasket.etsy.com shop. This one has flamingos on it. The next one is of my "Forest Floor" series, that has all different types of vegetation pressed into the clay. I have ferns and leaves and grasses in many shades of green and brown.
Doesn't Ruth Anne do a fabulous job? I just love seeing people's baskets! If you have made a basket with my pottery bases and would like to share it, please send a photo to me in an email.
Faux cathedral window throw made from upcycled jeans and dress shirts ran through the wash twice. It has frayed nicely. I’ll be trimming long stings for awhile, but I am super happy with how it turned out. This was a class that I took at @perennialstl if anyone is interested in learning how to make one themselves. . . . #quilt #throw #denim #upcycle #recycle #quilting #singer #singerfeatherweight #featherweight #blog #bluejeans @perennialstl #perennialstl
